These are English Waters! Elles sont francaises ! by Lykaios-Avery These are English Waters! Elles sont francaises ! by Lykaios-Avery
Actually, they're international waters...


Photo three of the spam set. Gosh I'm having too much fun with these pictures...

I suppose you could call this the equivalent of a navel battle (I didn't have two different ships).

Both of these guys are commisions. One for :iconxotri: and the other for :iconmaplepucks:. The tricorns that they're sitting on are actually the hats that I made for the Pirate!England and Pirate!France cosplays, respectively.

A note to those who are familiar with French: DeviantArt won't let me submit the title with a .

[The cockade is crooked and it's bugging me, but it's too late to retake the photo...]

Are you talking about the English Channel? xD The French don't like to call it that so they call it- La Manche
Lykaios-Avery May 10, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I didn't have any particular body of water in mind, though the Channel works.

I never quite understood why the French call it La Manche. It looks nothing like a sleeve, in my opinion. Though I suppose if you consider it to be an 'arm' of the Atlantic...

There is a proper name for it, but no ever uses it xD. I take French if you're wondering...
Lykaios-Avery May 11, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
A proper name? Which name? La manche has been in use since the 17th century, if I recall correctly. Maybe the 18th.

Though the European Union was looking into changing the name to the Anglo-French Pond in 2010...

I'm well versed in French myself.

Sorry for the late reply-
I actually forget. We had to use a different word in French 1. I think it was Angleterre Canal... I don't even remember

I would sell my soul and body to get a cosplay of Pirate!France and Pirate!England....
And I would sell it twice for mochis that cute!! >w<

Can't help you with the first one (I can't bring myself to part with my costume creations), but I can fulfill the second one. And it won't even cost you your body, just the soul is good.

How about making a "copy" (does that word even exist for clothing?) of your France cosplay?
And yes, if you can make me have a France cosplay, you'd sure have my soul.

Oh, sorry, I meant you second request referring to the mochi.

Even a replica of my Pirate!France cosplay would be really expensive... I've been meaning to post pictures, but haven't found the time. The coat and doublet are almost entirely made of silk brocades and damasks,including the lining. Then there's all the satin cord trim, the lace, the silk cravat, the lightweight crepe shirt... The hat is made of wool felt. The baldric/sash is made of cotton, but the sword sheath is made of leather and the prop sword itself is worth about $200. Same with the boots. Then there's the time I put in to make it... In short, it's really expensive materials because I tried to make it all fit with history.

I've never put out an estimate for a cosplay before, but even without the sword, boots and wig, I don't think I'd part with with the outfit for anything less than $1000-$2000.
